This security setting determines whether to audit each event of account management on a computer.
Examples of account management events include:
- A user account or group is created, changed, or deleted.
- A user account is renamed, disabled, or enabled.
- A password is set or changed.
If you define this policy setting, you can specify whether to audit successes, audit failures, or not audit the event type at all.
Success audits generate an audit entry when any account management event succeeds.
Failure audits generate an audit entry when any account management event fails.
To set this value to No auditing, in the Properties dialog box for this policy setting, select the Define these policy settings check box and clear the Success and Failure check boxes.
